With Arts & Skills Service, Bay Area artist Allison Smith organizes workshops and gatherings examining the intersection of craft and the war effort, reviving a World War II-era collaboration between SFMOMA and the Red Cross. In this latest installment, Smith partners with Shout! For Women Veterans, a three-day arts festival to honor women vets. Look for a special screening of the documentary My Mom's a Soldier on Thursday and a day of skill sharing on Saturday.
